Album Notes
The Closer I Get

A new solo CD of 12 original songs
by the writer of Lou Reid’s #1 hit “Time.”

John Cadley has been playing, singing, and writing music since he was 13, when he formed his first group at boarding school. By college he was in The Glencoves, a folk group that toured behind the national hit “Hootenanny.” Since that time he has played in many bluegrass and country groups throughout the Northeast, as well as a national touring stint playing guitar with Clay and Sally Hart, two former singers on the Lawrence Welk Show.

John’s songs have been recorded by Lou Reid, Jim Hurst and Missy Raines, and Tony Trischka. His song, “Time,” became Lou Reid’s first #1 hit, remaining in the top spot on the Bluegrass Unlimited chart for three months.

John has previously recorded two award-winning CDs of original material with his own group, The Lost Boys. The first, Middle of Nowhere, received a Highlight Review in Bluegrass Unlimited and was voted the #1 CD in any genre in his home region of Central New York.

The Closer I Get is John’s latest—and perhaps best—work to date. Produced by former Ricky Skaggs guitarist Clay Hess (now with Mountain Heart) and recorded at Randy Kohrs’ Slack Key Studio in Nashville in May ’07, it features Clay on guitar, mandolin, and vocal harmonies, Randy on dobro and vocal harmonies, Terry Baucom on banjo, Aaron Till and Tim Crouch on fiddles, Beth Lawrence and Darrin Vincent on bass, and Jennifer Strickland on vocal harmonies.

John's Cadley's work is excellent. He needs to do his song Time with this group of musicans. On this album I especially liked, "The Only thing Missing " and "She's much too young" keep writing and singing Johnny boy!! Bill Byrne

The Closer I Get
Love this album - a gentle fusion of country and bluegrass, with deep-felt emotion that rings true in every song. The musicianship is excellent and perfectly balanced at each turn, and the lyrics and melodies blend a perfect poetry of listening pleasure - a pure pleasure to listen to again and again. John: when is your next album coming out?

Love It! A good friend sent me this CD because of my love of country music. What a great gift - Thanks Bill. This is my first time listening to John Cadley. He has a smooth voice with lots of emotion. Great music, just the right touch of bluegrass. I am looking forward to more.
